New email reveal holes in Attorney General’s story…

A recently released email from the Justice Department appears to conflict with Attorney General Alberto Gonzales’ assertion that he was uninvolved in the firing of 8 US attorneys last December, reports ABC News…

Also, in a closed door meeting with congressional investigators over the weekend, Sampson told senators that President George Bush went to Gonzales in October to notify him of complaints regarding fired New Mexico attorney David Iglesias, according to the Associated Press.

….RAW STORY reported yesterday on an Albuquerque Journal article that alleged that Iglesias was fired after Sen. Pete Domenici (R-NM) complained to Bush.

“During a phone call with reporters on Monday, [New York Senator Chuck] Schumer said Sampson’s statement contradicts what Gonzales has said previously about the firings,” continued the AP.
